Best fish tacos I have ever had as well as best Mojitos! The food presentation is great for this little bar/restaurant. And the staff is fabulous. Had dinner there almost every night. Thank you Michael for making our stay in Old San Juan wonderful. Ya - we were definitely regulars here!

What a pleasant experience, both culinary and with the staff/owner. This was such an amazing experience that 2 months later here I am writing a review. Let me say that the Churrasco (flank steak) was just amazing, the appetizer sampler was unique and very tasteful, and the Mofongo was a memory hard to forget (2nd time eater of Mofongo, hated it the fist time, now I can't stop thinking about it bc of this restaurant. If you go to PR and do not stop by at this place (after dawn) for drinks and amazing food, you missed out.

The staff made sure we had a great time, the owner came out to talk to us and gave us so many free drinks and treated us like friends. Forgot his name, but be sure to ask for him, white guy from NJ.....

Think of this review as a recommendation from someone that like to eat nothing but the best (Peter Lugers in NYC, checked....) and will only rate a place if it is a 5 rated (top experience) or a 1 rated (rather eat popcorn daily for 5 years before I eat this again!!!

Enjoy!! Also worth mentioning my other favorite spots in PR: La Playita (best Sangria in the world, Spain, DC, Chicago, NYC ..... got nothing on this place, Churrasco (flank Steak) amazing too!!!

We absolutely loved our meals at Punto De Vista, so much that we went back again with 14 friends! The owner Mike is a fantastic host who puts out top notch food of very high quality and the presentation is exceptional. This is a super fun place to eat and make new friends.
The restaurant is not fancy but servers like Jorgito make you feel super well cared for. Mike is so friendly and caring that he walked us up to get cabs. Run don't walk and eat the best mofungo and skirt steak ever!
Make sure to tell Mike Nancy from NJ said he rocks.

What a great restaurant and bar. We were so grateful that our concierge had told us about this place. Looks like a sports bar with most of the seating outside........perfect since you are in old San Juan across from the cruise ship docks. Mike, the owner, is originally from New Jersey and his staff is fabulous. Mike and the waiter, Jorgito, greeted us and suggested pork mufungo and the skirt steak. Both were gourmet presentations, with flavors that rivaled any more expensive places in the area. We brought groups of people several times and were sure to call ahead to make sure they could accommodate us. You would be crazy to not try this. You will not be sorry. Thanks to Mike and Jorgito and the fabulous chefs!

The staff was fast, courteous, friendly, and helpful. Kudos to them. However, I was a little disappointed by this one. The food was good, but didn't compare to some of the other places we ate at in Old San Juan. I was excited when I saw this one because I remembered the name and that it had good reviews on here. But as I was sitting out on the pation eating dinner, I looked up and saw the Giant cruise ship directly across the street and realized why it was so popular.
